Our Trade & Investment Partners

We work closely with a number of partners to maximise the reach and effectiveness of our trade and investment activities. These include partners in Belgium and the UK, and government and non-governmental bodies.

Each partner has a different area of expertise, some focus on supporting companies entering the Belgian market for the first time, others work with Belgian companies looking to invest in the UK. We also work with national business organisations in Belgium and other international Chambers of Commerce.

Together we are able to fully support companies in Belgium – whether from the UK, Belgium, or any other country. We couldn’t do what we do without them.

 

Why Belgium? 

Belgium is an ideal starting place for companies new to exporting. For any company looking to expand into Europe Belgium is the ideal tester market - it is an open and dynamic market with plenty of opportunities for high value products and services, and English is an accepted business language. And for UK companies it is just a short train ride away, making your export journey that much easier.
